cherrypatter has definitely not been a one banana show. i have needed all the help i can get from j. he has given me lots of time to glue my eyes to my tiny computer screen while tending to two needy but loving children (breakfast, talk to dad; read a book, talk to the big poppa; spend mindless minutes rolling out playdough — you know who will help you). he has also been a two-week delayed proofreader (at least it is proofed), has taken lots of photos and serves as a sounding board for lots of nattering. and now, entering new territory as my first guest post writer, the report on sheepstation is all his.
having enjoyed a ten-month stay down under in my innocent youth, i was thrilled when an aussie pub opened down the road from us. sheep station led the way for bars and restaurants opening up along 4th avenue. it is a great space — long bar, wooden tables and a back room with a cozy fireplace and dartboard. the beers are excellent too featuring the aussie stalwarts tooheys and fosters as well as “sheep’s milk”(go figure) as well as some european standards such as hoegaarden and guinness. sheep station also offers great tucker including the delicious lamb sandwhich served with chips or salad. by j. sheep station, 149 4th avenue at douglass, brooklyn, ny, 718.857.4337.
